Yes the dried stuff is so bitter. I keep the growing plants in summer but they never seem to survive at this time of the year.

 

In winter I use fennel seeds instead of basil to pep up omelettes but Italian dishes really need the fresh basil.

 

Fennel fronds grow wild in Calabria.They use them mainly in pasta.Don't know how easy they are to grow here.

We have booked the Princess cruise as well - definitely a moment of madness for us as not at all like our normal cruises.  I went to look at it to be nosy and no intention of booking at all.  Then Allan saw the deal which includes drinks, tips and wifi  (strange how he tends to get swayed by drinks packages) and decided he wanted to book it, so there goes.  Have already posted on the roll call.

Great 🙂 The more the merrier !

3°C and sunny this morning.

Last night's snow is melting but rain/ snow is forecast soon for a few hours.

The ground looks icy so we will just stop in the house.

Take care and stay safe friends.

Graham.

Ah, I've got one booked. Roger is too young to find me there!

I think he has already been 30 and 40(within months).I'm sure he could 'age' if necessary!

Sorry John - third place, but a good effort.  Hopefully you are as embarrassed as I am to have known the answer! Does my street credibility no good at all!

It was a simple old fashioned Tin Pan Alley style pop record, Tony Burrows was the lead singer who was also responsible for the Pipkins "GimmeDat Ding", and White Plains, "My Baby Loves Lovin", all categorized as Bubble Gum rock, easy listening with a catchy tune; and I am far too old to worry about street cred anymore.

Well, " who knows where my Rosemary goes? "

10 points for the name of the group - no googling! 

Edison lighthouse. Not cheating, I saw them in Oswestry in ,I think 1970. I can't remember why , but probably a young. Lady involved.❤️

It's dull and overcast here with occasional showers but not too cold. Very quiet after all the heavy rain and winds we've had recently. 

 

 

Lovely bright blue sky and sunshine here, however windy and flippin' freezing cold.

Very similar down here.  Might be a tad warmer though, about 8 degrees.  Off for a stroll this afternoon.  Hopefully the Old Bill won't fine me if I sit on a park bench with a couple of cans of super lager!

Well its Rain rain rain over here  - not really a problem for us apart from the fact

I need to get on the  leaky shed roof to replace a tarp I put on last week and has turned

out to be not as waterproof as it used to be. 😞   

 

We, well I have been looking at the P Med Cruise and it is a possible maybe for us.
Currently booked for an August cruise which I have thought for some time might not happen.
It is all paid for using FCCs  and has been rather messy as it also involved FCDs
 and the "system" took the £150 for the FCDs but only after it took the full price of 
the cruise in FCCs.
This was last September, when I suggested they simply transfer 150FCC back into our
captains circle account where we still have a few FCCs left.
After 2 months they decided they couldnt  (wouldnt?) do that and  said they would refund
£150 in Cash !!   - still waiting  -at last enquiry ,end Feb has been suggested.

So as I say whilst it is a maybe. I am going to wait and see as we dont want to accumulate
even more FCCs.  

Anyway for those doing that cruise I am working on a spreadsheet  ( converted from
my emerald 2019 one - 159 on that sheet! )  should have a work in progress version

later today, unless by some miracle  there is an actual gap in the rain instead of

light rain with heavier showers.

Well, I suppose we could invite KTS along to make up the numbers.😃

 

And just to cheer you yet further, press briefing tonight at 5pm with Ms Patel - apparently we're all goin' to get a jolly good talkin' to.😅

First snowdrop I’ve seen

We have seen a few snowdrops too and have sunshine so something to feel positive about. Just about to take part in a Zoom Murder Mystery Event. Will be able to pretend I am on a cruise as thats the only time previously that I have taken part.Has anyone else taken part in one of the murder mysteries onboard(usually on TA crossings)We have really enjoyed the couple we have been part of.

We did - it was good to do the puzzles and trying to work out whodunnit but we were

not happy with the result and reckoned the winners had done it before- sour grapes?

I will not tell you why we were not happy in case it spoils it for you if you do another.

We have also done a couple of "escape room" ones and got locked in as did most others

we talked to.
